Laser hair Removal Clinic Lahore- Intense Pulsed Light is a technique which is quite popular in the cosmetic world these days for its effective use as a hair removal device. The technology employs a range of wavelengths of light which are absorbed by the part of the molecule which is responsible for its colour. It describes the use of intense pulses of non-coherent light distributed over a range of wavelengths from 500 nm to 1200 nm, for removal of hair and other purposes.A related but distinct technique is laser hair removal; the primary difference is that laser treatment uses laser-generated coherent and monochromatic light. Regulations governing IPL and laser hair removal vary by jurisdiction. The two techniques are often confused. One cause of the confusion is the variety of names used for intense pulsed light treatments, as intense pulsed light is a registered trademark, which was strongly policed during the early days of the technology. Hence new names and trademarks were introduced for similar or identical treatments. Treatments similar to IPL are referred to in different abbreviations in order to clarify the distinctions.
Apart from intense Pulse Light, there is another method of laser hair removal. It is called Variable Pulsed Light, abbreviated ‘VPL’. Its distinction from IPL is that it uses ‘variable’ wavelengths, that is, a range of wavelengths. These wavelengths are distinctive and effective because they ensure maximum absorption by melanin, initiating the removal of all kinds of hair of varied girth.The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first IPL hair removal system in July 1997. In the years since then it has become mainstream with a variety of pulsed light devices now used in clinics around the world including Pakistan to stop unwanted body hair.
The IPL treatments put an end to routine shaving and waxing. They leave the skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier. This patented technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver long lasting results. IPL’s wide beam treats larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face rather than treating one hair at a time. The benefits of IPL hair removal include; larger areas may be treated at one time, works equally well with light or dark hair and skin, lesser chance for scarring and pigmentation change, lesser pain and discomfort compared to other hair removal treatments. It combines the speed of shaving with the lasting results promised by electrolysis. IPL is effective on almost any area of the body where smoother, younger-looking hair-free skin is desired.
IPL devices are more difficult to operate than lasers are. They also require a very experienced and skilled technician, anaesthetic and surgeon to operate them. Fortunately, most hair clinics in Pakistan and the rest of the world have the required expertise and equipment. It should not be used on patients who are pregnant or trying to conceive. Treatment of skin with psoriasis and eczema or areas with infection should not be treated. IPL hair removal treatment is the closest science has come to complete and permanent hair removal from almost any body part. Its clinics require expensive machinery and qualified staff as it is a difficult procedure. However, due to advancements in this field over the past years, such clinics are found in many numbers and places offering a diversity of choice for the customer.
